Congratulations. You've made it past the hair thing and decided to see if there's any substance.
Model - 1956 Original (East coast manufactured with 3 years of R and D) followed by 19 years of continuing testing / research in the Midwest. Shipped to California in 1979 for preservation and continued product refinement. Body / frame / driveline well maintained, serviced regularly, all original parts intact, and appraised at high Kelly Blue Book value.
Old school values...i.e. walking between you and the street, helping you on and off with your coat, opening doors for you, calling people Ma'am or Sir (elders, military personnel, and others deserving). My parents stressed / beat into me manners and I'm grateful for that.
I believe age is just a number. How old you are is how old you feel. So I live young and believe "IF YOU DON'T USE IT, YOU LOSE IT".
College degreed (Health / Biology / Business). Full baseball scholarship at Indiana University. Retired State of California Parole Agent (30 years state service). Started young, finished young, still young...and feel truly blessed that I am so fortunate. My very rewarding career allowed me to help / protect people. It also brought me to a realization that there are three types of people in the world...wolves, sheep and sheepdogs. And it's the sheepdog's job to protect the sheep from the wolves. I enjoyed being a sheepdog.
I can hold my own in a conversation. I read...lots. Follow politics and news. I think it is important that we are cognizant of what goes on in our city, state, country, and the world. So many people fail to realize that the world is larger than the two shoes they occupy.
Retirement attire...blue jeans and tee shirts of course. I can clean up pretty good in a suit, but GQ I'm not. I'm know that I'm just a regular guy.
Music...Love it. So what makes up your playlist? Blues that’s rock influenced and classic Rock is what fills my iPod.
When it comes to having fun, I think it is more a function of who you are with than what you are doing. Everything / anything is better with the right person. Conversely, doing what should be the most fun things have that "disaster potential" with the wrong person.
I try to stay fit and do it on a bicycle and ride daily (I log log 125-175 miles a week). No, I'm not in possession of washboard abs (but they're in there somewhere), but I'm definitely not the Michelin man either. 6'-1" 187 lbs. (height / weight proportionate).
Yes, Harley Davidsons are a part of my life (riding for 30 years). I like them and I like riding them (but then you figured that out if you looked at my pics). My home does reflect my lifestyle, and no, it does not look like a garage with bikes parked inside. Hardwood floors, granite counters, crown and baseboard moulding found here.
Riding is fun and therapeutic for me. How many times have you ever seen a Harley parked outside of a psychiatrist’s office?
No children, no wives (2 ex’s), no alimony, no child support, no encumbrances and...no drama. I love my mom (she’s 87 and still washes her own car...by choice) and talk to her daily. I would hope you enjoy being on a bike (or are at least willing to try). Or even better, ride your own. Any destination is more fun on my bike.
Your health is important to you, your integrity intact, you have no prison record, no substance abuse issues, are a good communicator and are not dependent on the term "WHATEVER". Love smart in a woman (smart ass is a plus especially when mixed with with a touch of that sassy sarcasm). Verbal banter is fun and besides, it keeps you sharp.
I think the term soulmates is way overused in this venue. It takes time and requires effort to find that "ONE LOVE”. And if it is to flourish, it must be tended to and nurtured (Love is not a static state...it is dynamic and "tending the garden" will make it work).
